Who is Chrissy Teigen and what is her background

Christine ‘Chrissy’ Teigen, 31, was born on November 30, 1985 in Utah to father Ron, who is of Norwegian descent, and mother Vilailuck, who is from Thailand.

Ron worked as an electrician and took jobs all around the States which meant the family were often on the move and lived in Hawaii, Idaho and Washington before settling in California when Chrissy was a teenager.

Having grown-up watching and learning from her mother how to cook, Chrissy had ambitions to be a chef until she was discovered by a photographer while working in a surf shop.

She made her modelling debut in 2010 when she was 25 and appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 2014 alongside Lily Aldridge and Nina Agdal.

Chrissy has appeared in magazines such as Cosmopolitan, Italian Vogue, Esquire and Glamour. She has also modelled for brands such as Billabong, Ed Hardy, Nike, Gillette, UGG, and Nine West.

Chrissy currently co-host the US version of Lip Sync Battle with LL Cool J since 2015.

Has Chrissy Teigen had cosmetic surgery?

Chrissy admits she has had liposuction to get rid of her armpit fat but denied having extensive surgery on her face and body.

The 31-year-old star opened up about her looks in an interview where she seemed to hint that her whole body is “fake” and has been altered through the use of cosmetic procedures.

Speaking to Byrdie, the star quipped: “Everything about me is fake expect my cheeks.”

According to the site, she then pointed to her forehead, nose and lips as she said: “Fake, fake, fake.”

When asked about surgeries she has had in the past, Chrissy went on to admit to Refinery29: “I had my armpit sucked out, which was one of the best things. It’s a big secret, but I don’t care.

“It was nine years ago or so. And I had two inches to my armpit. Now it’s back though, so now I’ve gotta pay for [liposuction] again.”

She continued: “It was so easy. It made me feel better in dresses; I felt more confident. It was the dumbest, stupidest thing I’ve ever done. The dumbest, but I like it, whatever. I have no regrets, honestly.”

However when some reports about her admission began to appear online, Chrissy took to Twitter to clear up her words.

She tweeted: “Reminder to never ever joke, ever (I did do the armpits, no regrets except it clearly came back).”

Chrissy continued: “You think I’d have this ass if I’d done extensive work? Like who would ask for this ass.”
